Would not stay there again. We were charged $45.77 for a sand site littered with dog poo. Ran water for 10 minutes and it was still rusty so we did not hook it up and lived with onboard system water for the night. Gave them a 1star because it is better than a rest area or a Wallylot for the night.

THIS CAMOGROUND SHOULD NOT BE LISTED AS A GOOD SAMS CAMPGROUND...pictures are deceiving on website..we were shocked to see the campgrounds..the women's bathroom was nasty...I don thInk the comodes had evet been cleaned..showers had wads of hair in dreassing area of shower..our campsite was out in the open sun....eventho there were
sites in the shade open and requestwd shade lot......the so called fish and release ponds were a
joke....more like a Seth pool and gator
infested ponds.. grass uncut. .the
pools....we're ok...not kept as clean as
they could have been....several chairs under shade were broken....the whole campground looked way tired and run down ...the
beach area....was nothing like the
website site was..the only good thing was that the employees were very very
nice...the laundry r[m was ok..good machines.

When I read the reviews from here and other places I was very apprehensive. But, because of the location I took a chance. The park is very nice. I am very pleased.
The sites are roomy and level. The staff is friendly. the wifi is the best I've had in an RV Park. They say you can get 4 channels with an antenna, but we get many more than that.
I would recommend this place to anyone!

This place should not be a Good Sam Campground, if for no other reason than the terrible, unlevel sites. If it weren't so late in the day and I was not so tired, I'd be outta here...

I can't speak to the appeal of families to this park but for couples on the move it is a great place to over-night or even spend 2 nights. Easy access from I95 from either North or South. Looks like a great pool there. Bath houses were large, no waiting. But not top notch. Site is on a lake but most sites are not lake front. We found May flies, although in Aug. They need to resolve that problem; very annoying. Best thing about the resort is that it has a really great restaurant on site. A really good value if in a MH and no toad. We would go there again just for the food. If ever traveling I 95 through SC, good place to stop.

Overnighted here from I95 on New Year's Day. Staff was very friendly. Our site was large enough for our 43' MH and TOAD without unhooking. Water and electric were fine. This CG is very close to I95 which makes for easy access but you will hear road noise even with your windows closed. We could see cars going by on the highway from our site - its that close. Overall a good stop over. An added plus is the Marathon station across from the CG which had low prices on fuel. It also has truck pumps for big RVs like our diesel pusher.

Very nice CG. People are friendly and the RV spaces are roomy, mostly pull throughs. Lake front, restaurant on premises, nice restrooms.

We stayed with a group. The staff was very nice and helpful. However we had some issues. The sites close to the lake were unlevel and had lots of ants. We were able to receive good tv reception because no trees close to the lake. The sites were sand, so very hard to keep it out of the RV. The staff was nice to spray for the ants. They also loaned us some boards to help level. Pretty setting but be prepared to level and poison for ants.

We will not be returning to this campground. When we arrived at our campsite at about 5:30 pm, there was still a bag of trash from the previous tenant on our site as well as some small bits of trash across the site. We went to play golf, only to discover that the mini-golf course was in total disrepair. We then went to the pool and lazy river – “lazy” being the proper name because it doesn’t flow, you just sit there unless you push yourself off the side – and neither was in very good condition. Additionally, the pool closes at 8:00 so we barely had time to use it before we were told that we had to leave. Young kids were driving around on golf carts throughout the campground with no adult on board (the oldest child looked to be around 10). The dumpsters were over-flowing and rancid. Also, they fail to mention that the on-site restaurant is only open Wednesday thru Saturday. Cabins take up all of the waterfront sites so that’s not an option if you’re camping. Some of the staff was very friendly. However, some were unprofessional and unfriendly. They definitely did not make you feel as if you were welcome and that they appreciated your patronage. We left early and will not be going back.

Stayed over night heading to the Northeast U.S. Check in was easy and the office personnel very friendly. We were lead to our site. Roads could be smoothed a bit. FHU Pull thru course sand site was very level and all utilities worked properly. Swimming pool has unique river type set up so you can "tube down the river". Bathrooms were clean and very nice. The supplied wifi was inadequate. ATT and Verizon, both voice and data, is very good. It's a hike to the dumpster.

We stayed at this campground en route to FL as we have done several times in the past. It has changed staff and management since our last visit and it was evident. The sites are not nearly as well-maintained nor are the restrooms (trash in several sites, in several sites, restrooms not as clean as usual - bleach would remove many of the water stains). An employee commented that things aren't as nice as they used to be. Many long-term guests. Cable only available on a few sites. Things may be different during the busy season when people visit to fish and boat. May or may not return.
